It is with a great deal of sadness that Soccer Laduma has learnt of the sad passing of South African and Cape Town football legend, Reggie Jantjies.
Jantjies was one of the best players to have emerged from the Western Cape, having made a name for himself in Mzansi’s top-flight with Hellenic FC.
In recent years, Jantjies has been a renowned youth coach and has been passionate about passing his experience to the up and coming youngsters. The Siya crew has learnt that Jantjies recently had his leg amputated prior to his passing.
“Reggie Jantjies has just died. He had his leg amputated and it must be from the repercussions of the amputation that he sadly passed away. He was a great player,” confirmed the source.
Soccer Laduma would like to extend heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and all those affected by the passing of the local football legend.
